 Aims
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } After this course, the student: Is able to analyze circuits with sources and resistors, inductors, and capacitors, using the methods taught Clearly identifies the circuit components, characteristic curves and  equations that define their operation Recognizes whether the design, implementation and output signals is best addressed with node voltage method, Superposition and/or Thevenin and Norton theorems Designs the circuits on paper, identifies and discusses each circuit via systematic analysis Uses basic mathematical skills for Electronics: Sets of equations, 1st and 2nd order differential equations, complex numbers, integration, partial derivatives, integration by parts and limits In a team, can develop a working project for measuring a physical quantity, and diagnose faulty components, short circuits, overloads, feedback via the implementation in protoboard or Arduino platform. Is it logical? Are the input/output signals correct? Masters the use of basic instrumentation such as voltage/current sources, multimeter/oscilloscope for the characterization, optimization and analysis of basic circuits and the project Can efficiently and clearly communicate the project both orally and in writing. Presents the solution in clear and logical steps, with explanation/schematics/pencasts/videos/written reports and in Arduino
 Content
 body { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } table { font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial } Tests and the assignment will be assessed on: St Logical and correct solution of the problems, by using node voltage method, superposition and/or Thevenin and Norton theorems, via systematic analysis, and the use of mathematical skills for Electronics such as: sets of equations, 1st and 2nd order differential equations, complex numbers, integration, partial derivatives, integration by parts and integration by limits. A written solution using Physics Laws and Math/Modelling is expected. The project will be assessed by means of a rubric, during a physical demonstration using the Arduino platform for which 2 Electronics experts will provide partial assessment of each project, in an expo-type session
Assumed previous knowledge
